TBRI® Caregiver Support – Virtual Group

Aug 1, 2023

For biological parents, adoptive parents, resource parents, and caregivers of children and teens who have experienced early trauma or loss. We do our best to group participants with others who have shared experiences. 

This support group will provide parenting tools and techniques to use with children and teens who have had early trauma and continue to struggle with regulation and healthy connection. Each session will have a learning segment, followed by an interactive time to process and problem-solve the unique challenges that each caregiver is experiencing with their child.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is an evidence-based therapeutic model that trains parents and caregivers in attachment-based, trauma-informed interventions to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses Connecting Principles for attachment needs, Empowering Principles to address physical needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.

Series I:  TBRI Connecting Principles – This series will focus on examining your own attachment pattern and how this impacts your relationship with your child. We will also focus on using connection strategies to help your child feel safe, regulate, and heal from trauma.  

Cost: $200.000 individual/ $250.00 couple. Please email aburrharris@childrensprogram.com for scholarship requests if needed.

Here’s what past participants had to say about our TBRI Group (Comments are Anonymous to Protect Participant Privacy):

“I wish I would have taken this 4 years ago when we started getting support from Children’s Program. The skills taught are realistic and they work. It’s worth the investment of time and money.”

“Taking the TBRI Parents Support Series has been life changing for our family. It provides a new lens through which to view my child’s and our behavior, and has made working through some of the trauma-based behavior so much easier. The resources and regulation tools are so valuable.”

“As we have worked to implement strategies that we learned in the TBRI parenting class, we have see a transformation in our relationship with our daughter.”

Additional TBRI modules coming in 2024:
Series II: Empowering Principles (Winter 2024)
Series III: Correcting Principles (Spring 2024)
